Description

The Martin D45SS, Steven Stills Signature Dreadnought is widely considered one of the very best modern dreadnought guitars. The voice of the Brazilian Rosewood and Alpine body is at once powerful and beautiful. The D45-SS is a versatile Martin Guitar capable of sounding like a pre-war banjo killer or a modern big body fingerstyle guitar. This one has all the 45 Style Abalone trim plus Hexagon Fret Markers, Inlaid Pickguard and Steven Stills signature inlaid on the fingerboard. The label of this limited edition D-45ss is also signed by Steven Stills.

I've known this very guitar for some time now and have played it a bunch. It is an example of the very best coming from Nazareth, PA these days. Martin did everything right on this Steven Stills Signature model. It will do anything you ask it to do. It plays like a dream and sounds amazing.
 
I think this dreadnought is the best that Martin has made in recent years. The balance is perfect and it really projects. The guitar is perfect for fingerstyle or flatpicking. And, it's collectible. You can't go wrong.
